How You Stay Healthy in a Life Crisis

A longtime GSG reader came to my 12 Steps to Whole Foods class recently. (Which I’m teaching again on June 6. In Orem, Utah.) She’s just been hit with a double whammy—literally the two biggest life stressors there are, all at once. An unfaithful spouse and consequent divorce…and loss of a full-term baby. She’s depressed, […]

Whole Foods and Depression, Tori’s Story. Part 2 of 2

This story is worth your time to read. It made me cry, both when I first read it, and again when I sat down with it to craft it into a blog entry to share with you. It moved me because, on its own, it’s a gorgeous story. It’s also very close to my heart, […]

Depression and Anxiety Nutrition Strategies, part 1 of 3

My friend Shari called me last week. “Guess what. My friend Emily was totally normal, and has been in mental hospitals for 12 years now. They found out a few months ago that it was the MEDS they started her on that made her crazy. She’s been off them for two months and she’s just […]

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl,

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl, My thank you is long past-due.  I came to your class at the Herb Shop in Orem back in May of 2010.  I was hoping to find a way to help my two-year-old son eat vegetables, smoothy-style, but, I didn’t at all bargain for how I would change.  At first, I was wary.  What […]

Thyroid—you might have a problem and not know it

All estimates I’ve read are that 25 to 50 percent or more of American women have significant thyroid issues. Possibly over half of women over 40. Most of these women are undiagnosed. If you have low thyroid, which is the most common thyroid problem, symptoms may be low energy, slow metabolism / weight gain, dry […]

Read Sarah’s inspiring story about a year of green smoothies!

Today I share a letter we got recently. As reply to this blog entry, tell me—what happened to you when you (a) started drinking green drinks daily, and/or (b) started following my program to shift to whole foods? (There’s more! Don’t stop with just green smoothies!) I think it’s important that people hear YOUR story, […]

More on mercury amalgam and other dental controversies….dentists weighing in….part 2 of 7

I got back last week from my Northern Cali speaking tour and went right to Dr. Ulm’s office right here in Lindon, Utah. He’s the first dentist in Utah accredited with the IAOMT (Intl Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology). Accreditation requires a rigorous examination of mercury-safe practices and demonstrated knowledge of materials, toxicity, fluoride, […]

depressing foods

Researchers at University College London published findings that eating processed, fatty food increases the risk of depression. One group in the study of 3,486 people ate whole foods (mostly fresh vegetables, fruits, and fish) and the other ate fried food, processed meat, dairy, and desserts. Researchers controlled for factors like exercise and smoking, and even […]
